Jane Williams 

"Now You Think You Have Learned"

excerpt from BETWEEN BREATHS


Jane Williams has the uncanny gift of linking everyday observations, occurrences, and emotions — from the soul to the universe — earthbound to the stars. ~ Laurie Brinklow, author of “Here For the Music” and “Prince Edward Island Memories”
… an Australian poet with a global conscience, an eye for the exceptional in the everyday, an ear attuned to the aurally-alluring, and a heart for the oracular. Her poetry is the best kind: intimately, enticingly, melodiously human. ~ Alison Clifton, Reviews editor at StylusLit

 If you look for poetry that speaks to the mind and heart in equal measure, which knows the moments of wonder in the least of us, then look no further, for this is the real thing. ~ Ron Pretty, author of “What the Afternoon Knows”; “Postcards from the Centre”; member Order of Australia
